Diamonds are the centerpieces of many types of jewelry, and they are frequently used as solitaires in engagement rings. While these stones are some of the hardest in the world, they are still susceptible to damage, especially when worn on your hand day in and day out. Fortunately, our skilled jewelers can repair just about anything, from a minor chip to a larger fracture, and we'll return your diamond to you looking just like new.
In order to ensure the best possible outcome for all diamond repairs, we follow the same set of general steps every time we take on a project like this. However, because every diamond is unique, we also pay careful attention to the individual details of each piece.
• The first step we take in any diamond repair job is to asses the stone for possible loss of material.
• Next, we'll resurface the damaged area by shaving away layers evenly across the entire stone to restore its original shape.
• Finally, when all evidence of damage has been eliminated, we'll re-polish the diamond so that it sparkles like new.
There are several different ways diamonds can be damaged, and the type of damage your stone shows will impact how we go about repairing it. For instance, a small chip or crack may be eliminated with just a good polish, but a larger chip will require some cutting to create a new, chip-free edge.
And even if you have a larger area of damage, don't despair. Our experts can often simply recommend a different shape to cut the diamond into in order to let its brilliance shine through and eliminate the damage while preserving as much material as possible.
Damage is not the only reason you may want your diamond reshaped. For instance, you may have inherited an older family diamond and want to update its cut to give it a more modern look. But no matter how or why you need your diamond cut, our experts are up to the task.
We can cut your diamond to any shape desired, and our new brilliant cut standard ensures that the diamond we return to you will look better than brand new. That's because the beauty of a diamond is dependent on a good cut, which allows the stone's natural brilliance to shine through. With our experts on the job, your stone will get the best possible attention and shape, no matter what type of damage it's sustained.
Tanya J. - Seattle, WA - April 2011 - YelpSkip all the Jeweler nonsense out there and head to Joseph Jewelry! Shortly after getting married, my ring finger decided to become allergic to white gold. Although the decision was tough, we were able to return my ring to the jeweler who made it since I could not wear my ring anymore. Even my doctor joked about me being, "biologically high maintenance," when recommending a more hypoallergenic metal. After months of searching for a replacement and not finding exactly what I liked, I learned about Joseph Jewelry. Whether you choose a gorgeous ring from their ring cases or decide to design your own ring, Joseph Jewelry ROCKS! I opted to design my own ring having an idea of what I wanted, where Joseph designers used imaging software and created wax molds allowing me to see how my ring would look before actually having it made. I worked with Ryan, a designer, in creating a platinum version which resembled the ring I had before combined with the design of another ring I saw downtown and also added a few of my own custom details. Ryan went above and beyond in making sure the ring was exactly as I liked and he had an incredible amount of patience with me during the imaging process where the design materialized before going to production. The end result was beyond gorgeous and turned out better than I had ever imagined!! For such an important affair in choosing THE ring to wear the rest of your life, you are working with the best of the best at Joseph Jewelry.
